Winemaker's Notes

"The 2004 Barolo Rocche has been breathtaking on the occasions I have tasted it. A deep, intense Barolo, it bursts forth with a compelling array of dark cherries, dried roses, menthol, minerals and spices in an explosive expression of ripe fruit laced with perfumed aromatics. This rich, vibrant Barolo grows in the glass, gaining volume, depth and persistence. Like Viettis's other 2004s, the Rocche is a concentrated, structured wine that will require patience. I have been fortunate to taste many of Vietti's legendary wines from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, but the 2004 Barolo Rocche is in a class of its own. It may turn out to be the finest wine made at this historic property. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2026." - Wine Advocate

It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
